Old Thing

words

lyrics & notes

The next thing is the best thing
The nice man said to me
And Soon they’ll be arriving in my store
The next thing is the thing you need
The best thing that we’ve ever made
You soon won’t need that old thing anymore.
When you were new
You could do
Anything
Back when you arrived you were such a shiny thing
Did you guess that you might get replaced
One day for the current model
Did you blah you might get betrayed
The new thing is the old thing
But you won’t believe the sound
The new thing makes the old thing look so bad
The old thing is depreciating
Now the new things almost here
The old thing’s going to end up in the ground.
When you were new
You could do
Anything
Back when you arrived you were such a shiny thing
You were the thing that I wanted so very abad
You were the thing I played on to keep me from feeling sad
You were my thing and I loved you until I outgrew you
You were my only thing when you were new.
The old thing has retired now
But I couldn’t say goodbye
The old thing never thought that it would stop
The new thing’s looking worried now
Though it gets so much of our time
I swear I catch it glancing at the clock
When you were new
You could do
Anything
Back when you arrived you were such a shiny thing
You were the thing that I wanted so bad
You were the thing I played on to keep me from feeling sad
You were my thing and I loved you until I outgrew you
You were my only thing when you were new.
When you were new
You were all the world to me
You never failed, you were my friend
I threw away the guarantee
When you were new
You could do
Anything
Back when you arrived you were such a shiny thing
